Film Greyhound with Tom Hanks: The herd with the rudder to save

In the Winter of 1942 to seize the international war effort against national socialist Germany is increasing steadily. One aspect of the Film is "Greyhound" by Aaron Schneider picks out: The war entry of the United States led to an intensive fleet traffic on the Atlantic, the German U-boat associations attempted to interfere with forces. "Your flock is not safe from the Wolf", so it is heard from a German radio message to reach the American destroyer USS Keeling with the nickname Greyhound. The travesty of the sounds from this voice that is crying out for a just punishment. However, in order to control the herd ("the flock") sure, by the icy sea, there needs to be a good shepherd. His name is Ernie, and he is played by Tom Hanks.

America's most reliable Anyone with heroic qualities plays in "Greyhound," the captain of a ship that is to escort an entire convoy from America to Europe – and especially through the area that is referred to as the "Black Pit", as a black hole. The Broad, which were not reached by aircraft. There the ships had to make do without the "air cover". The on-Board armament had to be sufficient to it with the U-to include boats, their periscopes in "Greyhound" again and again, so turn up that one can't help but think of the "great White shark". But it would be maybe even these robbers of the seas to icy in the waters in which the U-boat war takes place.

Tom Hanks was this in-house production of Apple TV obviously of particular concern. He himself has written the screenplay based on a novel of the great yarn spinners C. S. Forester: "The Good Shepherd" is called in the title the essential quality of Ernie Krause. He is a man who thinks not in the case of submerged enemies of the eliminated enemies, but to the "lost souls". And he is an excellent captain, where it makes you think about the limited possibilities for action better to exactly that: A ship on the high seas, in the year of 1942 was able to defend itself against torpedoes and other hazards in terms of the most important maneuvers that a sailor commandments: the rudder around tear.

The scenes that would also like in the cinema

The commands of Ernie Krause don't let the Greyhound wacker in the waves dancing, at one point a missile by a hair's scars on the hull of the Greyhound, but it almost comes to a collision of a warship and U-boat. The Germans are here, suddenly, in very concrete terms, one could look each other almost in the eye, and so this action are thought sequences as well, as the compaction of the war on a clash between upright men and insidious attackers from deep. The scenes have quite the stuff to like in the cinema, the history of the "Greyhound would have been but a revamp is probably" a little.

Because of Aaron Schneider and Tom Hanks are limited to Apple on an almost minimalist story: There is just a kind of prologue to see in the Ernie Krause with a beloved wife, who accompanied him, but rather as an image of Longing, because of a marriage, the elegant, blonde lady wants to know nothing. Ride, you could, of course, but at least she could answer him. But that wouldn't fit the Aura of selflessness, the Hanks to the character of Ernie cultivated. All the Rest of the film then plays on the ship, and there, under the inevitably cramped conditions.
